Welcome to a new decade. We are wit-

the Phoenix, is born of its own ashes,
rising to great heights only to die and
be reincarnated again. Part of that cy-

The 90s will offer new opportunities,
and fulfill great promises, whether it be
through the launching of a career,
achieving academic goals, or by initiat-
ing new steps towards discovery and
freedom. For others, we will witness the
birth of ideas, perspectives, and emo-
tions. The 90s will offer graduating Sen-
iors a new beginning of their lives —
the beginning of their careers and an
end to torturous days of continual
study. Then there are those who opt to
study, and the 90s offers them only the
best as they journey on towards gradu-

swept up together in one continual cy-
cle. Trom day to day the Sun follows a
cycle from sunrise to sunset; and from
birth to death we rise and are gently laid
to rest. What has been diminished lives
on through words, photographs and
other reflections of our yesterdays.
The phoenix is represented through-
out this book to illustrate the cycle of
life at Eckerd College, and to help us
reflect on our year, to say good bye to
the 80s while looking towards the 90s
and our future.
Welcome To The 1990's: The
Birth Of A New Decade
Autumn Term Helps Fresh -Ecks
Orient To Life In College
Throughout Autumn Term freshmen from all over the world
got acquainted with each other, and they had one thing in
common: they were new to Eckerd College. Most of them
weren't used to sharing a bathroom with sixteen people, or
even living with another person. An objective of Autumn Term
was to help them make the transition from home-life to com-
munal living. New quests ranged from eating 'Saga " to at-
tempting to get to sleep before 4 a.m. Cooperation was the
word throughout Autumn Term. Resident Advisors and Au-
tumn Term activators tried to make the transition easier, and
even the games at Funlympics emphasized cooperation be-
Krazy Kappa Carnival was
Eckerd's way of welcoming
the upperclassmen back after
a seemingly short summer,
and it also helped the fresh-
men realize that, yes, there is
life after Camp Eckerd. From
volleyball to water bombard-
ment competitions, each
complex had its chance to
show everyone what it's made
of. During the day Krazy-
Kappa was a good old Ameri-
can picnic, with sun, ftin,
food, and music, and that
night, with music provided by
Shamrock, students partied
all through the night to start
the year off with a bang.

Parents And Students Enjoy _
The Annual Kon-Tiki Events
Kon-Tiki was held riovember 4, as part of the annual
Parent's Weekend. The main event was the exciting and
amusing raft race in Frenchman's Creek. The winning team
manned the "AIDS Awareness Raft ". Constructed by Delta
Complex, this raft was made entirely of inflated condoms.
The best-theme-award was presented to Dante House for its
In addition to the raft race, parents and students had the
opportunity to try out waterfront equipment. There was also
two-on-two volleyball competition, as well as a variety of
other sports activities. Refreshments and T-shirts were
available, with all proceeds going to All-Childrens' Hospital.
When people in Florida think of
Homecoming, they think of pep ral-
lies and tailgate parties and serious
football competition. Well Eckerd
may not be able to compete with UF's
Gator Growl, but we have something
that is unique and special to us . . .

were decorated with spray snow an-

tional float parade. Beecher, Scott,

Life IS a strange journey through harsh
and forbidding territory. No one gets out
of here alive. The dangers are many, the
rewards are few. Life is sarcastic and
cruel. It plays havoc with the best of
intentions and always sows the seeds of
the worst. The only sources of light and
hope in this dark and barren land are
love and friendship. Without these, no
mortal can survive the mockery of fate.
Friendship is the best defense one has
against the malevolent forces along the
road. Friendship is very valuable and
important . . .

The beginning of the 1990s marks the end of an era
at Eckerd College. Not only do we bid farewell to the
eighties, but we will also say good bye to a very
special man. Mark Smith will be ending his tenure as
Dean of Students on June 30, 1990. Mark came to
Eckerd in 1978, and in his eleven years here has
touched the lives of many students. He has helped us
learn, by his example, to be competent givers. Mark
will leave behind big shoes to fill, and he will be
remembered as an important part of many lives.
Wishing Mark well with his retirement, we know that he
and Woody will remain a part of Eckerd for years to

Now that you're finally a graduate, you probably think that college is all behind
you. Not so, Baccalaureate breath! Now you're an official member of the "A-
Team" — your Alumni Association. That not only entitles you to some special
privileges, but also carries some responsibilities such as letting us know where
you are and what you're doing.
As an EC Alum, you're invited to be a volunteer in one of our many exciting
alumni programs such as career service, admissions, reunion weekends, phon-
athons and more. It's a great way to be a "giver" after graduation.
Even though you'll probably be leaving the Bay area, Eckerd College will always
be a part of you. And we want to know how you're doing — your goals, accom-
plishments, etc. Call us at (8 1 3) 864-8405 or write: Alumni Association, Eckerd
College, 4200 54th Avenue South, St. Petersburg, FL 33711.
Good luck and keep in touch!

So mui-.j crossroads;
You entered my life.
With little to "go on "
But a guiding light,
It was always a test
To pick wrong from right.
Mot enough spoken
Or said out loud.
Kindergarten through High School,
I was always proud.
Mow through college.
An opportunity "\" nere had.
Don't forget . . .
To say, 'thank you dadi "
The last four years
Away from the nest.
And with flying colors.
You passed the test.
So try your wings
From me and heaven above.

Good luck in both your academic and athletic

Fall '89 Students
As the final semester of the 1990s draws to a close,
so does another successful edition of the Reflections
Yearbook. The previous decade was one of reconstruc-
tion. The repercussions of these events spanned the
decade, impacting the community here at Eckerd to all
people around the globe. At its start bridges were con-
structed. Our own Sunshine Skyway was rebuilt. The
end of the Eighties presented us with a different view of
ourselves and the world around us. Barriers were de-
stroyed. We all witnessed the destruction of the Berlin
Wall as the decade drew to a close. Hopefully, in our
own persona! lives we each rebuilt bridges and tore
The Reflections Yearbook also underwent a recon-
struction. The phoenix was chosen to symbolize such a
rebirth, and despite the projections of others, it has
been established once again. There was a struggle
financially and, with a staff of only ten, at times morale
was low. Were our efforts worth it? You decide. Our
work now rests in your hands.
Our wish is extended to you, especially the Seniors,
to make the new decade a time of your own rebirth. We
gratefully thank all staff members who made another
edition possible, and everyone else who encouraged
and supported its publication. Without Lisa, our Senior
Editor-in-Chief, This yearbook would not exist. As with
her work on other publications she organized our ef-
forts, and united our spirits. She not only deserves a
big thank you . . . Lisa has earned a heartfelt goodbye.
Lisa, we will remember you as a co-worker and as a
The new decade holds a promise of hope and peace
on its horizon.
Like the phoenix, leave behind the ashes of yester-
day. Rise from todays fires and fly high into your fu-
